ET Phone Home !!!!!
The naughty woman that calls herself Lynne tempted me beyond belief... she posted up her gorgeous ET Phone Home block, it's foundation paper pieced and you know how much I like PPing lately, here's her link to the pattern lilysquilts.
I really didn't need more UFO's but I printed out a template, Amelia grabbed it from the printer and proceeded to colour it in... and then I copied it onto tearaway stabiliser that I have by the bucketload here...
Word of note for my next PPing adventures, do not tweet at the same time, do not try and follow 3 twitter conversations and DO NOT rotary cut your fingernail off while trimming the 1/4 inch seams...
but I'm thrilled with the result and am contemplating what to do with it. A cushion....hmmm or perhaps a mini wall hanging. I like this idea but not sure i've got time to quilt it... Lynne also sent me the templates for ET so I'm going to see if one or two of the patchwork ladies want to make it the old fashioned way.
Tonight, there's football on the TV and my buttons and magnets arrived (DH actually had the magnets in his workshop, he thought he'd ordered some weeks ago and had forgotten DOH) to make my fabric covered button magnets for the patchwork tombola at the end of the month...if we can find the glue gun that is LOL
